The EBR 1190RX is the latest monstrously powerful, all-American Erik Buell motorbike. It's also the first mass-production sportsbike to emerge from the new Erik Buell Racing factory in Wisconsin.

This Erik Buell motorbike is claimed to be the most fuel-efficient bike in its class. Each gallon produces between 52 and 84 miles on the freeway, and an average of 36 miles per gallon in hilly conditions.

One unique highlight of the EBR 1190RX is its chain idler, which applies tension to the drive chain under engine braking during high-revolution downshifts. As far as torque is concerned, this motorbike produces an impressive 101.6 pounds-feet of torque, making it the new torque champion amongst all the superbikes out there.

Ultimately, this bike represents a grand new beginning as far as great American sportsbikes are concerned.
